Comments about TE4 Early Version

Postby manutoo » 25 May 2021, 13:49

Hello,

post in this topic your comments about the Early Version (whose details & changelog are there : topic15-33239.php ), especially its latest additions & changes.

Suggestion topic for general ideas : topic15-30550.php (for a suggestion about something added recently to the Early Version, you're already on the correct topic).

For everything else, open a new topic, it'll be better to avoid clogging this topic... :blackeye:

Note : If you get a Bug, you're usually better doing a Bug Report from within the game ; HowTo => topic5-31732.php .

I've played just a few matches but so far it's a better experience than previous version (the current one from steam). I don't know how to describe this, but rallies feel much more smooth than before. I also noticed an improvement on the animations, they do seem to be better integrated and weird movements are less common (however they're still there, but they don't show up as often). I think it's ok to release a demo in this state and even publish it on steam for the general public. Speaking of which, and this is something I already mentioned on the suggestion post, I believe it would be better if all the players from PlayersATP.ini were loaded right away forthe training club. Here we all know how to load them and that stuff, but having it from the go would give a much better impression IMO for new players, you can even have a selling point as the tennis game with more players than any other, and also, the first thing I do in a new tennis games is to play a match then hit the world tour.

I have on question, I installed the new version alongside the steam one and I got to keep my training players as well as the key bindings (I don't use the standard one) for my controller. In TE2013 both players as key bindings (and a lot of settings stuff like cameras) were handled in the profile folder, but I couldn't find anything like that for TE4. How are these settings being handled in TE4? Does this mean I won't have to change the key bindings every time I install a new mod (I just copied the [Joy 1] tag, no big ideal)? It would be awesome to have these settings apart from modding.

I also hear some annoying sound from the demo version.

I've got the same problem with the music, but to be honest I really like it, definitely I'm gonna buy it.
By the way, how can I open this file? :lol:

Everybody,
the music bug should be fixed in today's build.

Fed1,
1) yes, I'm planning to add a menu to select a player from the World Tour in the Training Club, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... :fear:

2) the settings are kept in your Profile.ini ; the difference with TE2013 is that there's only 1 data folder shared amongst all versions ; but it could stilll have several Profile.ini's (if you wish to create new ones).

Andrews,
you may be able to access them with a Unity dessambler, but it'd be better to wait for the TE4 Modding SDK ; however, I still have to do the new Modding system for the outfits.

Any chance to have the possibility to turn off the dynamic animation system ?

Lucian86,
I may allow to turn it off once it's done at 100% ; right now, I'd prefer to get Bug Reports showing issues (preferably near the start of the match, so it's easier to replicate & test on my PC).

iloveme2233,
on what screen does it freeze exactly ?
Could you send me a Bug Report just before that screen ? (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )

Fed1,
I had forgotten to answer you about the animation bit.
So nothing has changed since the Steam version.
Basically, weird animation = wrong positioning, so if you see weird animations, then you have to work on your positioning. And if it feels better now, it might just mean you play better now..! :blackeye:

Note : however, there are 2 important exceptions from missing dedicated animations : the low far ball, and the high volley. I'll add these animations in the future. :-)

Hi, I am a novice of TE, just bought TE4. I need to learn how to play better, then I hope to have found a substitute of Top Spin. But I noticed some light reflections that disturb my sight during match. I have attached a screenshot with red rectangles to highlight the objects where there is too much "flickering" IMO. Playing with max quality settings.

Anyway you have all my kudos. As developer I know it is not simple to produce a game like this by a single person. :applause:
I only need to

duffer,
I tested quickly and it seemed ok on my rig, but I play at 1920x1080.
Maybe try to activate Settings -> Camera -> Force Sun in the Back.

And thanks for the praise..! :jap:

Thanks for getting back with your feedback. I did play matches for hours so I was hoping to improve a little :D, so it's nice to see myself rewarded. I would have added here a line about continue on this path of polishing the animations but from the planning post you've posted I can tell you really hear our feedback, it has everything we asked for! Thank you for caring about the community!
